Steffan James has been brought in by Cambridge Rugby Club to strengthen their options at fly-half.

The 23-year-old is joining Cambridge from Rams, where he impressed last season in National League One.

James is orginially from West Wales, and had previously been at Leeds Beckett University.

“Stef is working in London so has come to us purely because we needed to bring in another fly-half,” said Cambridge director of rugby Richie Williams.

“Harry Johnston has gone to France to play, and Lawrence (Rayner) is struggling with a knee injury that he picked up in the last game of the season.

“We felt that Stef, off the back of his excellent season at Rams last year, is the type of player and type of profile that will fit in really well with us.

“I think his game management is very strong, he’s got a good kicking game, he led the Rams attack very well last season and will be another exciting player for us to have this season.

“He’s probably a controlling No 10 but does have that ability to play quite flat to the defensive line and he does have a running game.

“But I think what probably impressed us most about him last season, and the two games we saw him play at the start and end of the season, was just his attacking capabilities and how he ran the show for Rams.

“If he can produce anywhere near that form for us this season I certainly think it’s going to help our attacking game a lot.”

James, who played Welsh age group rugby with Cambridge centre Scott Lloyd, becomes the club’s third confirmed addition of the summer, after props Seb Brownhill and

Matt Collins.

Cambridge start the 2022/23 National League One season at home to Plymouth Albion on Saturday, September 3.
